During the 1980s, an avionics testbed aircraft was struck by a heavy bird during landing, demolishing the pilot's windscreen. He was not hurt, and the plane skidded some but did not leave the runway. The base newspaper had page one photos and a story but this was before online information. Does anyone have a copy of the photo of the plane? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:49, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Why is this still called Naval Air Station Point Mugu, when the whole article is about NBVC?Broccoliboy5 (talk) 20:41, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

The Seabee base and the Naval Air Station consolidated commands to cut cost. NBVC is the resulting single command. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:36, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Naval Air Station Point MuguNaval Base Ventura County – It was renamed Naval Base Ventura County in 2000. Brycehughes (talk) 16:02, 21 April 2013 (UTC)


Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's policy on article titles.
Fair point, although note that many of those hits are talking about the base in a historical context, back when its name was NAS Point Mugu. Many of the books are either talking about the base in a historical context or were published pre-2000 (before the name change). I'm thinking the Google News hits are better for determining its common name used by reliable sources today. Brycehughes (talk) 06:05, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Support as this is the name of the base now. (Similar to giving a married woman her married name.) It would be possible to break out a separate article called "Naval Air Station Point Mugu" which would be a history of a defunct/merged basis; that could be done by expanding the redirect into an article. But for now the base should be called by its actual name. --MelanieN (talk) 07:20, 28 April 2013 (UTC)


Any additional comments:
Reliable sources use Naval Base Ventura County. E.g. search for each of the names in Google News and see the results. Brycehughes (talk) 19:38, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment, as Broccoliboy5 pointed out above, the article's content is primarily about the consolidated base, Naval Base Ventura County, including both NAS Point Mugu and Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme. This might be reason enough alone to rename the article. Regardless, if we don't end up renaming, it would probably make sense to split the article into two separate articles for each component of Navy Base Ventura County, since the NCBC Port Hueneme is not synonymous with NAS Point Mugu.

An alternative is to follow the route taken by Joint Base Lewis-McChord. There is still an article about Fort Lewis, and article about McChord Air Force Base, and there is an article about the joint base as it now exists.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 19:23, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Ship commissioning[edit]

Is Ship commissioning a notable event at a base? Two ships were deleted without discussion on 24 May 2014 with the comment - "Accidents and incidents: commissioning is not an accident or incident." Should they be moved to the appropriate section of the article? Fettlemap (talk) 19:37, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
